Bernd Krauss is a multi-media artist interested in situational artistic creation in site-specific scenarios. His work often functions as a means to discover an unidentified end, and he makes use of simplistic human actions in public spheres to encourage interaction with the pedestrian world. The artist’s subtle transgressions into the public world often demand either a literal or more psychological self-reflection from passers-by about their place, both publicly and privately, in greater society.

In his exhibitions painting, sculpturing, photo, video or performances are often combined in large-scale, multi-language installations. Krauss studied visual communication and cultural studies at the University of Hildesheim and now lives and works in Berlin.
